As I walk around Dewey this week, I am still hearing people talk about the Bull Run, local businesses have thanked The Starboard for bringing them in more business on the Bull Run than they had over the 4th of July! As you could see, the Bull Run is a stimulus day for all of Dewey Beach! There was red all over town, Jam Session, Sharkey’s, Que Pasa, Jimmy’s Grill, everywhere you would turn….you could see a Sea of Red that day! And needless to say, I cannot thank you all enough for what was the biggest non-holiday sales day in Starboard history! (then again, the Bull Run has become a holiday!)
The Run went well, with thousands participating this year. I have heard only great reports from both our Police Chief and our Lifeguards on how well everyone behaved. As if it isn’t stressful enough hosting such a large party on your own premises, turn everyone loose onto the streets and beaches…you cannot imagine my own blood pressure just praying that all went well, and it did! Thanks for listening to the lifeguards on the beach, and for moving quickly across the highway, etc…!
We sold over 500 sandwiches from Bethany Blues BBQ, glad to see that so many of you enjoyed that addition, and we gave out well over 70 cases of Bottled Water to keep everyone hydrated as drinking beers in the sun can catch you by surprise! There were multiple media people here, you may have caught all of the press in several local newpapers. I hope that all of you have recovered from the big day, and are ready for another weekend here in Dewey Beach to continue this awesome summer, we have never had weather this good for so long. July has made us all forget the rainy June!
The rules are simple, you sign up prior to 2pm either here at The Starboard or over at Wings to Go, you have 30 minutes at 3pm to eat as many Chicken Wings covered in Suicide Sauce as you can, no drinks, no getting sick, just eat wings! The winner is generally in the 120’s range…just to give you a target to shoot for.
Thanks again to all of you for the support you show The Starboard. It has been a remarkable summer, now we are passing the half way point, so expect to see more of you each weekend getting the most use out of your beach houses as possible. No more going home on Sundays…every weekend from here on out is a 3 day deal….Fridays start with Grotto Pizza Happy Hour, Saturdays we are your daytime headquarters, then Suicide Sundays are an all day-all night affair! You won’t ever find a cover charge at The Starboard, because we truly appreciate your business and hope you always enjoy your times here with us!
